Join in the "coolest" fundraiser of the year! Jump into the largest freshwater lake in the world as part of a fundraising event for Special Olympics of Minnesota, helping a great cause and earning a badge of bravery for taking the plunge!

The Cool School Plunge is an event designed specifically for students, staff and families of schools to participate in the Polar Plunge. While receiving a fun and educational experience about Special Olympics Minnesota (SOMN), the Cool School Plunge aims to teach youth from a young age about inclusion. Students will participate in the Polar Plunge and also interact firsthand with SOMN and learn more about ways they can get involved with SOMN programs. Students are encouraged to challenge others within their school as well as neighboring schools to participate!

Separate men’s and women’s heated changing tents are provided on-site, as well as a heated tunnel to warm up in afterwards!

Cool School Plunge* teams can also take part in our Give Back, Get Unified Fundraiser** to benefit their school.
